Everyone has a different idea of what sidewalks should be addressed first, Chair Joseph Diver said. 
"It's kind of starting somewhere and then working our way through that," Diver said. 
Highway Superintendent Edward "Bud" Hall has taken that into account a little bit because he considering the schools and high-traffic areas but an official study looking into pedestrian and traffic patterns has not been done.
